Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccine FAQs
Most commonly known as chickenpox, varicella is a highly contagious viral disease. Until 1995, when the varicella vaccine was implemented in the US, chickenpox was a common illness among kids under 12 years old. The first symptoms include fever, headache, sore throat, or stomachache, followed by a red, itchy skin rash that turns into blisters. It can affect all parts of the body.
